7.40pm, Nine, NBN

PG. 2009. Kids learn their hol­i­day home has been usurped by aliens that look like a cross be­tween Ninja Tur­tles and Grem­lins. A bat­tle en­sues be­tween the crea­tures and the tech­savvy kids, obliv­i­ous to the grown-ups. Plays like an end­less video game. 9.25pm, Nine, NBN

M. 2005. Dark, gloomy tale of the ori­gins of Bat­man with Chris­tian Bale as the Dark Knight – alias of Bruce Wayne – and Michael Caine as the faith­ful Al­fred. A cut above early in­car­na­tions, but the over­plot­ted last half is dis­tract­ing. Still, there’s some good mo­ments and the Batmobile is a rip­per. 9.40pm, Go!

M. 2007. Jon Heder, ap­proach­ing 30, still lives at home with mum Diane Keaton. When she starts dat­ing again, he stalks the cou­ple un­til he meets his own pos­si­ble mate, Anna Faris. Should be funny, but it’s creepy, squan­der­ing the tal­ents of a ter­rific cast. 9.50pm, ABC2

G. 1951. Rous­ing film ver­sion of the C.S. Forester’s novel about a prim lady mis­sion­ary and a drunken en­gi­neer es­cap­ing from the Ger­mans in a bat­tered river boat. Ter­rific com­edy ad­ven­ture with su­per per­for­mances. Humphrey Bog­art, Katharine Hep­burn.
